Freedombox Progress Report

Using Debian to Create and Preserve Freedom

The Freedombox Foundation is a non-profit organization started by Eben Moglen with the objective of building a Debian-based software image that will help create and preserve freedom by enabling broad adoption of federated, distributed alternatives to the current wave of commercial social networking sites.

In addition to his roles in Debian and SPI, Bdale is a member of the Freedombox Foundation board of directors, and chairs the technical advisory committee.

This session will provide an update on the Foundation's activities, particularly as they relate to Debian.
